The château is approached down a long lane to the gated entrance leading to parking under a timber car port. A short walk around to the courtyard and the château is in front of you, built in the beautiful white Quercy stone of the area.
The property is presented in generally very good condition, with stylish renovation, part double glazing and oil fired central heating.
The entrance is in the tower; the small entrance hall has stone stairs and ahead is the very spacious salon with two French windows to the rear terrace and views, beamed ceiling, tiled floor and open fireplace.
There is an archway to the equally spacious dining room, with tiled floor and two arches looking out onto the courtyard. An ideal room for entertaining. The TV room or library leads out to the rear terrace.
The kitchen is very large and modern with quality Gaggenau equipment, an island, dining area, terracotta tiled floor and door out to the courtyard. Laundry room.
Lovely stone stairs in the tower lead up to the first floor. Master double bedroom 1 offers some 30m2 with two windows looking down a beautiful rural valley, with a fireplace and pine floors. The bathroom in the process of being renovated. There are four further double bedrooms (one with dressing room). These rooms would benefit from redecoration. There is a modern shower room with exposed stone walls. The stairs continue up to the top of the tower where there is a quiet study with views.
Around the courtyard are three cottages:
Cottage 1: a former "bergerie", now a workshop and a three room cottage to be renovated. This could be made into a spacious guardian's or guest cottage subject to planning. The roof relatively new.
Cottage 2: A small cottage offering a living room, mezzanine, bedroom and shower. A little basic now and would benefit from renovation.
Cottage 3: The pigeonner building has been renovated and offers three rooms and a shower room, could be a small guest cottage. All the above need to be connected to a new septic tank drainage system, which needs to be installed to standards and which the owner will take into consideration when considering any offer.
The swimming pool is set in the gardens and is indoor, salt water, heated and 12m x 6m. Generous terraces within, and a tropical environment. The pool needs a new liner. The gardens contain many ancient specimen trees such as cedars. Below the château is the majority of the land which is oak woodland, with a spring. Some 8ha are planted with specimen trees under a grant. 5ha of arable land is tenanted until 2019 when it will become free again.
